The Mosesian Center for the Arts provided the following announcement:
While the Mosesian Center for the Arts building remains closed for renovation, the arts center continues to produce live, in-person events on the grounds of the Commander’s Mansion at the Arsenal on the Charles.
On July 14 and August 4, two Earfull events takes the stage—and both are nearly sold out. Since the early 2000’s, Boston musician and author Jen Trynin, and bookstore connoisseur Tim Huggins, have been hosting the series, bringing together the worlds of writers and musicians. They prove that, given the right environment, Book People will love the experience of live music, and Rock People will realize how cool it is to hear great authors reading their work aloud.
On July 28, STL GLD performs with Regie Gibson. STL GLD (“still gold”) pushes the limits of hip hop and makes it their own with elements of rock, punk, and cinematic orchestra. The band has performed and held events at unexpected venues for a hip hop group — Oberan at A.R.T., the Museum of Fine Arts, and a feminist shop in New York. STL GOLD were crowned winners of “Live Artist of the Year” at the 2018 Boston Music Awards and were named “Boston’s Best Band” by The Improper Bostonian. They’ve performed with Eminem, Khalid, and The Roots. Opening the evening, poet and literary performer Regie Gibson is a former National Poetry Slam Champion who has worked with diverse writers and musicians. Together, these performers will deliver a high-energy, genre-bending, and unforgettable live experience.
All events will take place outdoors under the tent on the grounds of Commander’s Mansion, rain or shine. The Mosesian Center for the Arts is undergoing major lobby renovations and will be closed through the summer.
Although COVID restrictions have been lifted, MCA will still be maintaining some distancing between seated groups. Seating is available in groups of two, four, or six, and all tickets at a selected table must be purchased. Take-out meals from Branch Line restaurant, also at the Arsenal on the Charles, will be available to pre-order, and beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages will be on sale.
Limited parking is available at the Mansion itself. Additional surface parking is available in the Arsenal complex and a free parking garage is just a short walk away.
